What's a paper chart? I'm confused. They still make these? :lol:

My iPad mini has a bigger screen than my Aera 660 so I'd probably whip that out in the event of a GPS outage for a sectional. The ForeFlight sectional will certainly fit the bill and get me home, or wherever I'm going. It'll be like in the "old days" of flying. :mrgreen:

I also have never heard of an outage or a PIREP about an outage in Florida or South Georgia. This doesn't mean they dont happen. We have a lot of military bases here.

Most of us carry multiple digital devices that fill the bill.
